Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.

Today we look at a candy version of a much loved cereal in the US. It was announced last month that Kellogg’s and Galerie Candy teamed up to release this snack version. The official release isn’t until Halloween this year but people in the states have managed to get exclusive access to early tastings so I can tell you a bit about them.
The candy comes in many different coloured rings including red, orange, green, blue and purple to represent the colours and style of the actual cereal. It is not just the colour of the rings that is accurate – apparently they taste exactly like the cereal with a touch of tangy sour flavour to give them their own unique edge.
They are predicting that these are going to be a huge success this year at Halloween, there is no news yet as to price or where they are available but we will try and keep you updated.
